Before signing up for IMoo 2012 I made sure I had my family onboard and was willing to help me reach my goals. Lee even spent our 14th wedding anniversary in Madison working a run aid station so I could register the following day. This year it was our 15th year anniversary and we were back in Madison.

Fall Classic Duathlon - Minnesota's 2nd duathlon season--there's a spring calendar and one in the fall--is underway, the most recent contest being the 6th annual Fall Classic at Lake Elmo Park Reserve last Saturday. Many of our state's "usual suspect" duathletes -- Derick Podratz, Jennifer Scudiero, Nolan Barrios, Rick Wegener, Jen Strange--did their typically impressive run-bike-run thangs, but there was a new name that lanced the event's predictability as if it were a big, livid, festering boil.
Okay, that was an excessive, and totally unappetizing, simile. Sorry....

One Last Tri VII - Did you see "Bridesmaids"? Yeah, it was a HOOT! Do you recall the scene when a gross sound escaped the body of obese, delusional Megan, wonderfully played by Melissa McCarthy, and she apologized, noting that she wasn't "100% certain which end that came out of"?
Well, we'd love to tell you with 100% accuracy how folks did at Sunday's One Last Tri at picturesque Big Marine Park near Scandia. But, as sometimes happens, there was a "timing thing." It's really technical and though we totally understand all the...

Ironman Wisconsin Race Report: 26.2 Friends
By Julia Weisbecker (http://julia-gobiggreen.blogspot.com/)
Before I get to any race report I have to give myself a huge fashion high five ( HFHF) for putting together a functional yet cool outfit in a chilly morning race. Thanks to Angela for the socks. Everyone now run to Target and get a pair of your own. Ok on to the race.
It's no surprise this Ironman was a bit different than last year. For obvious reasons i struggled this year. The physical struggle of basically dropping out of racing in early june to rest and fix a hamstring tendonopathy was a huge decision, the right one, but very tough for me. I wish i could have St. Croix 70.3 back ( without the rain but with lance!) and with a healthy body. So putting all my eggs in one basket was tough. The IM basket. I was right on pace with riding and swimming all summer. Running took another hit ( literally) when after Firehouse 50 i played Humpty Dumpty and fell over at the finish...
